This workshop will explore a variety of interconnected issues needing further discussion which include the transparency of research in regards to its aims and goals, the privacy and security of personally-generated data, the challenges to engage diverse populations and how to earn/build trust with communities that may be skeptical or unwilling to work with the government or share their personal data. We intend to invite 25-30 attendees for a two-day discussion that will highlight ongoing studies exploring these topics and we will work towards finding ways to promote adoption of best practices to a growing citizen science field that could benefit from thoughtful harmonization. The workshop is designed as a scientific exchange meeting in direct support of the goals and mission of the NIH and will inform program staff and the larger NIH community about the challenges and opportunities around the study of the ethical, legal, policy, and social implications of participatory research or citizen driven research.

NIH Director's Seminar Series

Monogenic diseases can be highly instructive in uncovering basic pathways whose perturbations lead to specific symptoms. Monogenic diseases associated with allergy present an opportunity to define pathways critical for preventing allergic disease. Previous studies of such diseases have understandably focused on the more severe associated phenotypes such as infection, autoimmunity or neoplasms. Our lab wishes to mechanistically understand how these mutations lead to the allergic phenotype, in order to learn globally important lessons in allergy pathogenesis. Additionally, we seek to define new genetic diseases of allergy by focusing on allergic symptoms as the inherited trait, and carefully examining more subtle phenotypes which may not have been brought to the attention of a medical professional, but provide invaluable tools in identifying novel disorders. This seminar will focus on several genetic diseases of allergy recently described by our lab along with a known one, and the pathophysiologic insight they have provided.
